NEW YORK A'- Rabbi
Meir Kahane and twelve
other members of the mili-
tant Jewish Defense League
(JDL) have been indicted
for conspiring to violate
federal gun laws, the Jus-
tice Dept. announced yes-
terday.
The conspiracy charges cov-
ered the alleged production and
possession of fire and pipe
bombs, and the illegal purchase
and transport of guns.
The charges did not specify
where, when or how the wea-
pons were to be used. A treasury
official said the weaponry has
not been seized.
The charges, returned by a
federal grand jury in Brooklyn
Wednesday, were kept secret un-
til the arrests late Wednesday
and early yesterday of eight of
the defendants.
While contending the charge'
against him were "obviously
false." Kahane acknowledged his
organization maintains "legally
registered" firearms and that
young Jews were being trained
to use them.
Seven of the eight, including
Kahane, were arrested in New
York and arraigned yesterday
Kahane was freed on $25,000 bail
and ordered to surrender
passport, pending the outcome
the case. The six others had
$10,000 bond set.
Following the indictments.
JDL issued a statement acr
ing the State Department of cc'
itision with the Soviet Uni's-
prevent anti-Soviet demons
tions.
The JDL has waged a cam-
paign against alleged Soviet op-
pression of Jews. At first, the
JDL concentrated on marclie;
and demonstrations, but last win-
ter they harassed Soviet diplo-
mats here by following and
taunting them for about a week.
They have also been suspected
of a number of bombings. While
denying any responsibility for
bombings at Soviet facilities in
the U.S., the JDL has applauded
the bombers' acts. Many of the
bombings were announced by
anonymous telephone callers us-
ing slogans connected with the
1 e a g u e, usually concluding:
"Never Again."
Arrested in New York vv. h Ka-
hane were Chaim Bieber, t per-

GRAND RAPIDS (A) - Police
maintained patrols inside and out
amid racial tension at three
Grand Rapids high schools to-
J day while city school officials
studied black demands for a
school of their own.
Demands for a high school and
middle school in the black cons-
munity plus an end to busing of
black pupils were on a list of sev-
en items presented to school
A ficials Wednesday.
There were no reports of any
incidents at Central, Creston, and
Ottawa Hills High- Schools, which
opened for the second consec
tive day under police guard be-
cause of racial tension.
A fourth high school, Union,
where the trouble began Mon-
day with a 10-minute slugging
match involving scores of black
and white pupils, remained closed
with no indication when it will
reopen.
No trouble w a s reported
Wednesday as one detective pa-

trolled inside each of the three
high schools which held classes.
Two uniformed policemen were
stationed outside each school and
there was a similar surveillance
for at least two middle schools.
Paul Phillips, president of the
Grand Rapids Urban League, pre-
sented the demands after a
peaceful march to the Board of
Edugation offices by a group of
about 300 blacks.
Phillips said the list, "repre-
sents the total thinking of the
black community, not just some.
On these issues we're all tI-
gether."
Other demands included im-
provements for predominately,
black South Middle School, em-
ploying more black school per-
sonnel, dismissing teachers iden-
tified as "racists,' and award-
ing diplomas to black hign school
seniors now in good standing 're-
gardless of what happens during
the remainder of the school
year."

prejudicial against the defen'
ants, one of the defendants, Cur-
tis Powell, leaped to his feet and
shouted "Pig."
Murtagh ordered Powell re-
moved from the courtroom for a
few minutes, but readmitted
him before submitting the case
to the jury, which included five
blacks.
The case, the longest criminal
proceeding in New York Stats',
began in April, 1969 with toe ar-
rest of the defendants and the
indictment of 22 persons. It has
cost an estimated $2 million.
Nine of those named in the or-
iginal indictment either have
never been apprehended or were
subjects of separate litigations.

The prosecution based its case
on the testimony of four under-
cover agents who infiltrated the
Panther party in 1968 and 1969
and reported daily on their ac-
tivities.
Defense lawyers hammered at
the credibility of the policemen
who said they were under pres
sure to justify their roles by get-
ting incriminating evintenuce.
They charged the prosecution's
case was compounded of out of
context statements, irrelevancies
and appeals to racial fears and
bias.
In New Haven yesterday, the
defense rested in the murder-
kidnap trial of Black Panthers
